Johnson Controls Updates victor VMS, VideoEdge NVR
Johnson Controls’ real-time incident response solution has been updated to maximize smart streaming resources that optimize operation of high-resolution cameras and robust analytics while providing more efficient bandwidth management.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls introduces version 5.2 of its victor Video Management System and VideoEdge Network Video Recorders (NVRs) from American Dynamics, a video management system that provides enhanced video intelligence and analytics for security personnel and daily business operations.
The victor client on VideoEdge hardware platforms allows users to leverage high-performance video streaming, audio, motion meta-data and an expansive feature set for improved real-time command and management, according to the company.
Johnson Controls says the combination of victor and VideoEdge maximizes smart streaming resources to optimize operation of high-resolution cameras and robust analytics while providing more efficient bandwidth management.
In addition to the transcoding options, by accepting triple video streams from the camera to the NVR, victor and VideoEdge allows for effective video management software operation in a bandwidth intensive environment. Operators can both listen and speak to individuals near a camera for improved situational response and control with new bi-directional audio support.
The victor VMS is said to streamline user creation and privilege assignment with the union of roles between victor and the C•CURE 9000 security and event management platform from Software House.
A single log/journal for both access control and video events reduces investigation time by providing a single point of information for accessing alarm-related video and tools in pre-defined layouts. Key system status indicators are clearly and visually displayed in a single graph form ensuring that operators have instant access to the most important system health information.
victor and VideoEdge also offer powerful command and control to seamlessly synchronize video surveillance with access control, fire, intrusion and other systems into one interface and recording platform.
“Active surveillance and security environments require immediate and streamlined access to critical event information and system health status to make the right decisions for incident response and conduct efficient investigations,” says Jammy DeSousa, senior product manager, American Dynamics, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “With its powerful event assessment, the victor and VideoEdge platform is designed to enhance operator productivity, improve our customer’s visibility of their entire environment and provide greater business insight to their overall enterprise.”
